Default Liquid Glass Questions...

I have a few questions about it...

On the back it says as you apply it the rag may turn the color of you paint because of oxidized paint. Wouldn't that mean it would be messing up the clear coat?

And it says to bake it in the sun, so would I put on, let dry, remove, and repeat as many times I want then park it in the sun for acouple hours?

I may add more as I think of them.

If your paint is oxidized, your clearcoat is prolly gone too. The LG will help protect the exposed paint. You can put as many coats on as you want. Put the first on, and let it sit outside for a few hours, then repeat. I have 3 coats on my car and the shine is wonderful. It is not as strong as a clearcoat, but it will help any damaged paint you may have.

It really is quite easy to use. Much quicker and easier than wax.

When I LG my car, no paint gets on the cotton applicator cloth I use. They probably just warn that to people without a clearcoat, or whose clearcoat has worn off, so they won't be surprised and freak out. If your clearcoat is in good shape, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

When I used LG on my wife'* GP, there were little water spots from our night-time lawn sprinklers that had left spot-marks in her paint'* clearcoat.

I had to rub and rub and rub the LG until my arm hurt to get the water spotting out. The car looked fabulous when I was done, but I'd use this as a general guideline to say that LG is actually really gentle on your paint, and if you actually *need* a paint-cleaning product, use something else first, then dish-soap wash to remove that, then LG.

My $0.02.

Don't put on consecutive coats back-to-back. Put on a coat, let it cure. Put on a coat, let it cure.

Call your local auto stores and ask. Both autozone and murray'* had it by me. If you can't find it you can order it from the website (search google for liquid glass) or Ebay has it sometimes.
